Singapore Banking Facilities
You may find it necessary to open a local account at a local banking institution in Singapore. Check with the institutions for their specific services and fees. There is a minimum balance required to keep the accounts open, and these vary among institutions. When opening a local account, you must have your passport with appropriate immigration stamps. Most institutions will accept a U.S. check, but it will take 3-6 weeks to clear and there will be a fee for this service.
ATMs are available throughout the island. Service charges vary with each ATM, and balances are shown in Singapore Dollars, not U.S. Dollars.
